“Nothing exists that does not affect something else” – Jeroen Brouwer –
For a split second, light illuminates the brilliance of the ordinary existence of things; it exalts and then vanishes within an instant.
To me light is both a tangible and evanescent medium, if not a language. By fading, shading, moulding and carving the light in my photographs, I try to transform reality and go beyond into an imaginative and intuitive realm. A dreamy meeting point of the palpable, the material, the evocative and the subconscious. My process involves composing layered images that nearly look like drawings, scraping off the innate realism that is embedded in photography, thus creating a twilight zone that enables me and the viewer to traverse into a more sensitive and subliminal world.
